How to Sauté Pumpkin Seeds 

Scoop out all the pulp and pumpkin seeds from the inside of the pumpkin and discard the pulp.

Rinse the seeds in a large bowl of water to get the remaining pulp off the seeds. Once the seeds float, scoop them out and dry them on a paper towel. Make sure they are completely dry before roasting, baking or sautéing (this could take several hours or overnight).

In a large bowl, mix the dry pumpkin seeds with oil and spices (see recipes below) until the seeds are coated. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat.

Pour pumpkin seeds in the pan and sauté for 5-8 minutes, stir frequently, or until seeds turn a slight brown and are fragrant; place seeds on paper towels and blot remaining oil.

Let cool completely, then store in an air-tight container.
